|KBC - "Shipenie" [top-47]|
In extreme, brutal and raw lo-fi style KBC is combining noise, field recordings and rap! In a halting voice, while drifting through the noisy urban dust storm, he's shouting out his own intimate truths, in a crude and straightforward form, holding his almost broken dictaphone in a weakening hands

|Aleksandr Novikov and Aleksey Petin - "Varsonofy in da funk" [top-62]|
Our beloved friend and maker of most authentic, heartfelt Russian experimental electronica Aleksey Petin presents his latest work, a collaborative album "Varsonofy in da funk". Playful and brutal mix of distorted guitars, lo-fi chopped-up beats, religious chanting, cheesy indie-ish happy melodies blended with noise/cut-up megalomaniac constructions, extremely slow and fucked-up techno grooves and god knows what else.....

|Fescal - A Slice Of Time And Energy (top69) - Fescal|
A beautiful and intense blast of lo-fi ambient, squeaky ethereal psychedelia and ceaseless flow of cozy melodies and delicate background noises, hovering in a boundless yet perfectly concrete and substantial cloud of sounds and thoughts around. Our latest release from Fescal, a project of our South Korean friend Guanxi (don't forget to check his Pixel album, if you ever miss it). He describes it a 'a new direction', and it's definitely one of the best 30 minutes of music I heard in a last few ti...

|Astma - Postgarage (top73)|
And there's one more installment from Alexei Borisov and Olga Nosova, who formed their duo in Moscow, 2009. Blossoming from some lo-fi cheesy lounge renditions and a random chit-chat about delay and reverse (which turns Alexei's output to a "decent bass" and Olga's - to a "piece of shit"), we're drowning in a pretty brutal free improvised industrial noises, pretty intense and calming at the same time...
